Winter brings us Christmas and the fun holiday season. But, it’s also the time of year where people tend to fall sick more often than usual. So, here are three health conditions you need to watch out for this winter:

Cold & Flu

I’ve decided to group these two together because they are slightly similar. Plus, everyone always seems to think they come as a pair. There’s a common misconception that a cold and the flu are the same things. You often heard people say they’ve got the flu when, in fact, they just have a cold. So, what are the big differences? For starters, a cold is nowhere near as bad as the flu. If you have a cold, you could end up with a blocked nose, a cough and feel drowsy. Your symptoms can vary in severity and will usually pass within a week.

The flu is like a cold on steroids. Everything feels a lot worse. And, you end up with aches and pains all over your body. Somedays you’ll wake up and won’t be able to get out of bed. Imagine the worst cold you’ve ever had, and then times that by two. Also, flu tends to last a bit longer than a cold. There is no cure for either of these; that’s why they’re so annoying. You can take cold & flu medication and get lots of rest to try and treat the symptoms. But, you’re going to spend some time off your feet and resting. These conditions are common in the winter because there are loads more germs flying about.

Asthma

Many people find that asthma is triggered during the winter. The cold air can make it even harder for someone with asthma to breathe. And, if you’ve never had asthma before, it’s more likely you’ll develop it during the winter months. Especially if you’re out in the cold and running around a lot. The cold air will enter your lungs and make it tough for you to breathe; you may even start wheezing. Wheezing, along with a chesty cough, is one of the many asthma symptoms. If you feel like you might have asthma, you should get yourself seen by a doctor. It’s important you get an asthma pump to help you through these cold months.

Dress up for your winter fun

Cold air is also one of the main triggers of asthma attacks. These attacks are potentially deadly, so you have to be ready to deal with them. This means carrying around your pump and medication at all times. You don’t want to be caught out by a sudden asthma attack!

Pneumonia

My final health condition is arguably the biggest one to watch out for. During the winter, temperatures can drop dramatically. The extreme coldness can lead to an infection known as pneumonia. It will wreak havoc on your lungs and can put you in intensive care for a few days. It often flares up in winter because of the cold and all the germs that are soaring around.

In fact, people with the flu are at risk of getting pneumonia because their immune system is so weak. Make sure you’re wrapped up warm and to minimize the risks of infection.
